In the U.P., it can be a challenge to believe that spring is right around the corner, especially with our record-breaking snowfalls this year. While you still may have to bundle up outside, there is no reason why you can’t start looking forward to the start of spring. The spring equinox is set to occur on Sunday, March 20th of this year. This event marks the astronomical first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the official start of the spring season.
What Is the Spring Equinox?
The spring equinox is when the Northern Hemisphere begins to tilt more towards the sun, resulting in an increase of daylight hours and warming temperatures in this hemisphere. Equinox translates to equal night. On this date, daytime and nighttime have similar, though not perfectly equal times. This is the moment where the sun enters an imaginary line that is only crossed twice a year, on the spring and autumn equinoxes.
Time to Think Spring
Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year, especially for those of us who have experienced the true winter season of high snow piles and frigid temperatures. As spring draws closer, the snow melts, animals come out of hibernation, and plants and flowers can once again bloom. We still may have snow on the ground come this year’s equinox, but that doesn’t mean we have to wait to start enjoying the best aspects of spring.
When you think Spring, you think vibrant flowers. Spring is when the most beautiful flowers bloom, including:
